Larry Fitzgerald had his worst game of the year. Patrick Peterson had his worst game of the year. Calais Campbell, Michael Floyd, John Brown and Rashad Johnson had their worst games of the year. Jared Veldheer had one of his worst games. Bobby Massie had one of his worst games. It’s fair to blame Palmer because the quarterback always gets blamed, but a good game from Palmer wouldn’t have overcome the franchise-wide beat down that Carolina put on Arizona.There are no excuses. There are facts. Before Palmer hurt his finger, his season QB rating stood at 106. After that incomplete pass to Floyd against Philadelphia until the end of the NFC Championship game, Palmer’s QB rating was 78.2. He went from a 31/9 touchdown-to-interception ratio to an 8/8. The finger isn’t an excuse because Palmer didn’t adjust.  Palmer needed to learn sooner what his body could do and what throws he couldn’t make. I refuse to believe, however, his finger was irrelevant to how Palmer finished the season.After the way the 2015 season ended, it’s easy to bury Palmer. You can declare, “Palmer will never win the big game,” because he hasn’t proven you wrong. Let me be the only person in Arizona who will step up and sit in the driver’s seat of the Palmer bandwagon. I want Palmer back as the Cardinals’ quarterback in 2016. Not just because he’s a better option than “what’s out there,” but also because you can win a Super Bowl with Palmer. Yes, I said that.

(AP Photo/David J. Phillip) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling I don’t know if Arizona will win, but a healthy Palmer won’t be the reason they lose. I won’t dismiss the third-highest 2015 passer rating in the league due to what I saw Sunday. There’s a long list of quarterbacks with a history of playoff failure. Some of them got out from under the “can’t win the big one” tag to end up winning the big one. There’s no reason why Palmer can’t add to the list.Palmer is relentless in his preparation but most of that preparation is done through drawing on past experiences.  He’s always learned through failure. We’re talking about a man who will finish second in the MVP voting. He will learn from this year and be more prepared for the emotions of the postseason next year. The players and coaches believe in Palmer, and so do I.Be angry. Don’t panic. Bet against Palmer now and I’ll bet you’ll get run over by the bus later. – / 69center_img Carson Palmer played terrible.There is no silver lining. Quarterback is the number one position in all of sports. The quarterback played poorly in his first Cardinals postseason start and was awful in his second. It’s almost impossible to win a playoff game when there’s a meltdown at the quarterback position.I’ll be glad to lead the frustration train that is angry at Palmer for playing so poorly. The Cardinals are 13-0 when Palmer has an 85 or better QB rating and are 1-4 when he finishes a game below 85. Palmer has been the key all year.  Arizona can’t win when they get a performance at quarterback like what was on display in Carolina.

Arizona Cardinals Emmitt Smith 22 is stopped fo

first_imgArizona Cardinals’ Emmitt Smith (22) is stopped for a short gain by Miami Dolphins’ Sammy Knight in the first half Sunday, Nov. 7, 2004, in Miami. (AP Photo/Luis M. Alvarez) The piece, from a current Cardinals running back to a past one, closed with this realization: “I’ve somehow never met Emmitt Smith.”Johnson, a first-time Pro Bowler in his second NFL season, probably won’t have to wait much longer to do so.Smith saw the article and on Twitter posted a video thanking the current Cardinals running back for looking up to him as a child.@DavidJohnson31 thank you for picking me out as the one to inspire you. Good luck to you and the @AZCardinals and God bless… pic.twitter.com/N6BLoi3IdB— Emmitt Smith (@EmmittSmith22) December 21, 2016“David Johnson, I saw the article and your tribute to Emmitt Smith, bro. It was definitely heartwarming and definitely, definitely I felt your spirit,” Smith said. “Thank you so much for picking me out as the one you wanted to watch ’cause you had many, many choices. I don’t know what it is about me that captured your mind, your emotions and your imagination. I’m just thankful God placed me in your heart and in your spirit. Good luck to you and the Arizona Cardinals, good luck to you and your career.“Give me a call anytime if you want to talk about anything, God bless.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Cardinals running back David Johnson saw Emmitt Smith’s spin moves and jump-cuts. His love of football grew around the desire to unnecessarily recreate them as a young child and physically punish his opponents in Pop Warner football, just as his Dallas Cowboy idol did on the NFL field.Johnson wrote about his obsession with Smith, the Hall of Fame running back, at The Players’ Tribune this week in an article titled “A Tribute to My Idol, Emmitt Smith.” With two games remaining in 2016, Johnson is chasing NFL history. He is the first player to record 100 yards from scrimmage in every one of his first 14 games and would break a record with 16 games of 100 combined rushing and receiving yards in every outing for a season.“He’s my childhood idol, guy I looked up to, the reason I played football and wanted to play running back,” Johnson said Wednesday after watching Smith’s video. “It meant a lot just to see him relay the message back, letting me know he read the tribute. It’s very cool to see him make a video like that.”He is also hoping to become the third member of the 1,000/1,000 club of players who have each rushed and received for 1,000 yards in a single season.The Northern Iowa product is sitting at 1,138 rushing yards with 13 touchdowns and 800 receiving yards with four more scores so far.

I ended up doing it, I think, the last two games last year so I’m just experimenting.”And now, of course, would be the time to do such experimenting.According to Palmer, the one benefit to wearing a glove is a better grip.“It’s kind of like cheating. Those things are so sticky now,” he said, referring to the footballs used.Quarterbacks wearing gloves is not a new thing. It wasn’t that long ago in which another Cardinals quarterback had his hands covered; though Kurt Warner, the recent inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, had gloves on both hands late in his career.Palmer is choosing to practice with only one glove on his throwing hand.“I’ve done it before in below-zero temperatures with 30-40 mph winds. It helps you spin it a little bit,” he said. “Personally, I feel like you lose a little bit of touch, but depending on the weather there’s some situations that it can help and so that’s why. It’s August, so I like kind of tinkering with things right now, and if we go to Philly (Oct. 8) and we have a crazy wind game, weather game, whatever it may be, it’s something I have experience with.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Other players banged up who did not see the practice field Wednesday included receivers Carlton Agudosi (knee) and Brittan Golden (groin), linebackers Jarvis Jones (back) and Philip Wheeler (foot), cornerback Rudy Ford (hamstring) and defensive tackle Ed Stinson (hamstring). Deone Bucannon (ankle) remains on the physically unable to perform list.Linebacker Markus Golden (foot) and tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (ankle) returned to practice.Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 1 Comments   Share   Back at left tackleLimited to strictly individual drills the day before, left tackle D.J. Humphries ramped up his work and appeared to practice fully on Wednesday. It was his first action in more than a week after dealing with a hamstring injury.“I’m definitely close, I’m definitely close,” Humphries said. “This whole situation kind of taught me to listen to my body a little bit and understand you’re not in college anymore. It felt good today. There was just a couple of movements here and there I felt it but other than that, man, I felt pretty solid.”Humphries called the week on the sidelines long, though he still was in meetings and participated in the morning walk-throughs.Humphries is unsure if he’ll play against the Bears. It’s been hard, he said, to watch from the sidelines, especially last week when the Raiders visited.“Even though them boys only played like 15, 14 plays, it was still like, ‘Damn, I could’ve got out there with those guys, man.’ They looked like they enjoyed themselves,” Humphries said. “It’s different when you don’t play at all in the preseason and you’re in your shorts, and you get to hang out with the guys and watch the young guys play. It’s definitely a different feeling.” GLENDALE, Ariz. – Friday will mark four weeks since the Arizona Cardinals reported to training camp. And they’ve still got another week to go.Several teams like the Chicago Bears, whom the Cardinals host Saturday, have already broken camp. That’s not to mention they began camp well after Arizona.“They’re getting bored with each other, looking more forward to games,” head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday, prior to the team’s 17th practice at University of Phoenix Stadium. Another padded practiceA more physical training camp, something Arians had promised, continued with the Cardinals practicing in full pads for a third straight day on Wednesday. The good news is that the team wasn’t in pads long as practiced wrapped up inside of two hours: 107 minutes to be exact.Receiver Larry Fitzgerald and quarterback Drew Stanton did not practice. They had the day off, as did safety Antoine Bethea, defensive tackle Frostee Rucker and linebacker Karlos Dansby; though Dansby was spotted working with a trainer on the lower field. He had dealt with a knee issue earlier in camp.Fitzgerald was scheduled to have Tuesday off but suited up anyway.“I think he wanted to help lead his group,” said Arians, who has been critical of the wide receivers this week. “He takes care of his room as good as anybody.”Injury updateAfter making a strong first impression with a team-leading seven tackles against the Raiders, linebacker Josh Bynes hurt his hamstring, which is going to sideline him for up to a week.“It sets him back,” Arians said. “He flashed, and like most guys you get off the street, they think they’re in shape but they’re not in football shape.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires No question training camp is a grind, moreso this year with the Cardinals playing an extra preseason game. By the end of August, they’ll have played five times and traveled back-and-forth six times, including a trip back East.“It’s tough. We’re kind of hitting a wall,” safety Tyrann Mathieu said. “I think the biggest thing is a lot of guys just want to sleep in their own beds. We started camp a week earlier than everybody else and we’re still here. We got about eight, nine days left so just got to finish strong.”Even quarterback Carson Palmer, who enjoys practice — “I look forward to it, I can’t wait for 2 o’clock,” he said — admitted the monotonous of camp is beginning to wear on the team.“Oh, no doubt,” he said. “You’re in a hotel, eating hotel food for a month. You got a roommate. There’s a lot of things that you got to fight through [in] training camp. That’s what training camp is. I think it hardens you. It makes you a better team the more time that you spend around each other, but there’s no doubt guys are waiting for next Thursday, counting down the days.”Looking like Michael JacksonFor the second time in as many practices, Palmer wore a glove on his left hand, his non-throwing hand.last_img read more

German national airline Lufthansa has revealed a huge increase in profits over 2007, reaping the benefits of a successful takeover and increasing popularity of its flight routes.Net profit for 2007 was claimed to have doubled on the previous year, making last year a record one for Europe’s second-largest airline and confirming the benefits of its takeover of fellow national carrier Swiss.The unusual move was greeted with some scepticism, but now looks to have paid off: combined group traffic surged 30 per cent in January from a year previously, with collective passenger demand for European, American, Middle Eastern and African destinations growing fast.A group total of 62.9 million passengers were handled over the year, but the popularity of long-haul flight routes with premium passengers was also seen to have contributed greatly to Lufthansa’s growth.Another factor contributing to the firm’s record year was the sale of its stake in tourism group Thomas Cook for a gain of €503 million (£379 million), with full financial figures set for release on March 12th.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

The furry green Philly Phanatic had guest starred and Flyers gear is much a part of the fabric of the show as Bev Goldberg dropping a “schmoopie” reference. So it seemed fitting the Eagles would eventually get co-billing, and they do, on Wednesday night’s “Hail Barry ” episode.About the only thing Goldberg couldn’t script was a perfect ending: He watched the Super Bowl at a party in Los Angeles and had to skip a hopeful trip to the Eagles’ championship parade in Philadelphia because of a time crunch to write this season’s final episodes.One cool part of being the boss of your own show is getting the chance to invite your idols to the set. His Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, family was part of a group that shared Flyers season tickets from 1985 to 1994 and older brother Barry was a die-hard Eagles fan. The 41-year-old Goldberg said his older brother arranged his wedding around an Eagles game, and is still a season-ticket holder even though he lives in New York. “The Goldbergs” featured an episode on Eagles’ gameday superstitions but Goldberg went straight to the source for this week’s homage — 1980s star wide receiver Mike Quick.Quick, a five-time Pro Bowl pick in the 1980s, was Barry Goldberg’s favourite player and plays an assistant high school coach in “Hail Barry.” Eagles president Don Smolenski, vice-president of football operations Howie Roseman and radio announcer Merrill Reese all make cameos. The Eagles executives made an appearance on the set when the team spent a week in Los Angeles in December between road games at Seattle and Los Angeles.Goldberg also taps into the NFL pop culture of the day with a shoutout to the Eagles 1988 rap video , “Buddy’s Watchin’ You .”Quick, a colour commentator for the team radio broadcast, was a natural on set.“He crushes every joke to the point where the writers are like, can he come back as a cast member. I’m like, this guy has a real job,” Goldberg said. “He’s so funny. If he went out here and went on auditions, he would get work.”Barry Goldberg, who swore he would never act on the “The Goldbergs,” broke his vow for the shot to live out a boyhood dream by playing catch with Quick . Barry Goldberg and his real-life Jenkintown Posse (JTP!) buddies play a game of touch football with their TV counterparts.At the end of the episode, the cast gathers for an “E-A-G-L-E-S, Eagles” chant as the screen shows “Dedicated to Eagles Fans Everywhere ,” and Queen’s “We Are The Champions” plays.“I knew the Eagles would win,” Goldberg said.Because of talent?“The minute I knew that (Barry) couldn’t go to the game because he got the flu , I said they’re going to win,” Goldberg said.Ah yes, some good-natured teasing between brothers, 3,000 miles from the City of Brotherly Love.The season five finale hit a bump this week when director Kevin Smith said he had a heart attack after performing at a Los Angeles comedy show Sunday night. Smith credited a doctor with saving his life after the 47-year-old “Clerks” filmmaker suffered a total blockage of his left coronary artery, often referred to as “the widow maker.” Smith was set to start shooting the finale of the hit ABC comedy on Monday but Goldberg said a staff writer will take his place for the episode.“I’m just happy he’s OK. I emailed him and told him don’t worry about my dumb comedy show,” Goldberg said . “Get better and we’ll have you back ASAP.”___For more AP NFL coverage: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

There’s also a literary bent to the lyrics, which can be cryptic or opaque but benefit from imagery that’s vivid and sometimes beautiful. On the love song “Owl,” he describes two birds who “both dropped into the air.”Mulvey pairs his words with inventive arrangements anchored by his fingerpicking and by producer Todd Sickafoose’s standup bass, with further colour provided by violin, pedal steel, accordion, clarinet and wine glass rims. Unusual chord progressions lend further unpredictability to the proceedings.Mulvey celebrates nature on “The Fox,” mourns war casualties on “To Your Joy,” echoes Brown on “Henry’s Only Daughter” and gets his Irish up on “Beckett Was a Bird of Prey.” The 13-song, 34-minute set goes quickly, and not just because of “Nickel and Dime.”Steven Wine, The Associated Presscenter_img Review: Whimsy and boundary-pushing from Peter Mulveylast_img read more

ORO MEDONTE Ont — For a bunch of British chaps

first_img ORO MEDONTE, Ont. — For a bunch of British chaps, the Rolling Stones sure know a lot about Canada, and Mick Jagger didn’t hesitate to flaunt his wisdom at their Canada Day weekend concert in Ontario.The frontman for the iconic rock band doled out handfuls of Canadiana on Saturday, pausing to reference everything from the Toronto Raptors’ historic NBA championship win to the “buck a beer” policy of Ontario Premier Doug Ford.Standing before a crowd of roughly 60,000 concertgoers, it didn’t take long before Jagger wished a simple “Happy Canada Day” to the receptive crowd, who didn’t seem to mind it was technically two days early.The concert at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ont., about 30 kilometres north of Barrie, was the only Canadian date on their North American tour. And for many people in attendance, it seemed a miracle that Jagger was even on stage, given his recent heart surgery.None of that was referenced in the 75-year-old singer’s tireless performance, which included swapping out one glittery jacket for another before eventually donning a hat and T-shirt emblazoned with the band’s famous tongue logo.Armed with his flamboyant swagger, Jagger zig-zagged across the massive stage — and strutted down the catwalk — for two hours, playing 20 of the band’s greatest hits.Popular classics “Paint It Black,” “Gimme Shelter,” and “Honky Tonk Woman,” were balanced with a selection of fan favourites, including “Before They Make Me Run,” a song Keith Richards wrote in response to his 1977 arrest for heroin possession in Toronto.And beneath four towering digital screens, Jagger played right into the audience’s hand at nearly every turn.“What about those Raptors?” he shouted, as the “We the North” logo flashed overhead. He poked a bit of fun at Toronto Mayor John Tory’s famous black-and-gold Raptors jacket, which he’s enthusiastically worn around town for weeks.“He’s still wearing his dirty blazer,” the singer said to Tory, who was in the audience.Jagger later introduced the band’s drummer Charlie Watts as the Toronto Maple Leafs’ mascot, seemingly for no particular reason.He also took a jab at Ford’s “buck a beer” election platform, telling the crowd at one point that “for the next 15 minutes it’s a buck-a-beer — courtesy of Doug Ford.”The comment elicited some boos in parts of the crowd, and no apparent discounts at the beer tents.But the Stones’ fans didn’t seem to mind, so busy caught in a moment that would be a little piece of history, and perhaps even a farewell.Earlier this year, Jagger underwent emergency heart surgery, putting the single Canadian date on hold, and raising questions about whether the rockers would ever tour again. When the singer got the all clear, the date was back on.“The health scare was kind of an indication this might actually be the last one,” said Marc Fielding, who joined about 30 of his friends on a road trip from Toronto.“They’re such an iconic band, so you don’t want to risk them maybe not coming back.”For others in attendance, seeing the Stones live came with extra significance.Jackie Morin’s father, a longtime fan, died shortly after the Stones most recently played Toronto. So this night was an especially poignant moment.“This is a big deal,” she said. “Never will you ever see a concert like this — it’s history.”Dino Bruno landed tickets when his sister-in-law surprised him. He last saw the Stones in the mid-1970s at Maple Leaf Gardens where he said the local news captured him playing Frisbee with police in the street.“The Stones were the bad boys of rock,” he said. “I wanted to be here because I want to die happy.”Jayne Sidey first caught the Stones at a Canadian National Institute for the Blind benefit concert over 40 years ago in Oshawa, Ont. It was part of a court-ordered performance for Richards after he was arrested for heroin possession.She said she was forever changed by Jagger and his buddies and has gone to at least 20 Stones concerts since.“I saw them three times in the U.K. last year, and we’re booked for two shows on this tour,” she said. “The 2013 show in Toronto was so good we all jumped in a car to Montreal and saw them there.”Several homegrown acts performed before the Stones took the stage, including Saskatoon-formed One Bad Son, the Glorious Sons from Kingston, Ont., Toronto four-piece the Beaches, and longtime favourites Sloan.Toronto cover band Dwayne Gretzky played a late-night show of other rock and pop classics, ranging from Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”A little over 60,000 people flowed onto the grounds, about 10,000 fewer than organizer Republic Live initially anticipated. The day-long festival marked the third concert on the Rolling Stones tour, which kicked off with two dates in Chicago a week ago.After the Stones finished their set, they offered a hint of the resilience that’s kept them going for more than half a century.“See you soon,” the digital screens read. by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 1, 2019 1:07 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email —Follow @dfriend on Twitter.David Friend, The Canadian Presscenter_img The Rolling Stones perform during the “No Filter” tour in Oro-Medonte, Ont., on Saturday, June 29, 2019.
